Electromagnetic Warfare Capability Gaps and Enabling Technologies 2023 Conference
May 16-18 | Crane, IN
Theme: Force Level Electromagnetic Warfare
The overall goal of this signature conference for Electromagnetic Warfare (EW) professionals from the military, government, industry and academic fields is to discuss issues related to achieving Force Level EW and Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) capabilities across the Services. Technical panels and keynote speakers will address EW and EMSO requirements and emerging technologies necessary to support joint warfighting and achieve an enduring advantage in the electromagnetic spectrum. Government and military leaders across the Department of Defense will present the essential role of EW and EMSO in Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Joint Long-Range Fires and Information Advantage and exchange with the EW community how innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are needed to advance collaborative and agile solutions to persistent gaps in our joint warfighting capabilities.
Classification: US Secret Only with third-day session held at TS/SCI US Only level

Coexisting or Clashing: 5G with Radar/Satellite
April 13 | 2 p.m. ET
With new bands specified for 5G communications systems, there is now an issue of coexistence, which is radar and satellite using the same or similar frequency bands with 5G. Such coexistence can cause loss of capacity in 5G systems, can cause reduction of radar effectivity and can even damage sensitive front ends in satellite ground stations. In this presentation we discuss new digital twin technologies that can be used for planning and simulation purposes of coexistence effects. We also discuss the use of lab prototyping to predict the impact of coexistence and the metrics used to measure impact. We also describe methods and metrics for monitoring a deployed network for coexistence conditions. Lastly, we possibilities for mitigating coexistence effects. With these technologies, EM effects can possibly coexist across all domains.

Where Does JADC2 Stand Today?
The topic of Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) always brings up many different perspectives and ideas for its execution and implementation. Ken Miller talks with EW Writer and Analyst Dr. Thomas Withington about the latest developments of JADC2 and its implications for modern warfare.
Dr. Withington is the newsletter editor for Armada International and shares his analysis of what JADC2 is working to accomplish. Ken and Dr. Withington compare how JADC2 would unfold against a strategic competitor like China versus an acute threat like Russia. They also discuss the need for improved inter-service collaboration, the importance of data standardization and risk-management approach when implementing AI and ML technologies and JADC2’s ability to improve decision-making on the battlefield.
